Prayers for the Military and Their Families

Theodore W. Edwards Jr.

Jun/2008, 176 Pages, Paperback, 3.75 x 5.5

ISBN-13: 9780898695878



This small, pocket-sized book of prayers and short Bible readings is designed to be a companion to Christian men and women in the military, serving on bases in the U.S. and around the world and in harm's way on the battlefield. It is also intended for use by the families of military personnel, linking them through the strong bond of prayer with their loved ones across time and space.

Included are brief forms of morning and evening prayer; prayers for the realities of daily life in service; prayers for protection, for the nation, for those who have died, and for a safe return home.

David Edwards has retired but was previously Provost of Southwark Cathedral, a Fellow of All Souls College, Editor of the SCM Press, Dean of King's College, Cambridge, Sub-Dean of Westminster Abbey, Speaker's Chaplain in the Commons and Dean of Norwich.
